Zombi is a survival horror game that puts the emphasis squarely on survival. Don't expect to be engaged in too many dazzling heroics - expect to escape death by the skin of your teeth if you're fast and lucky.

The concept is pretty fresh for a zombie game: in a post-apocalyptic London, you play as one of a number of survivors, who must gather vital equipment necessary to properly defend the human race against the flesh-munching threat. As it happens, a secret society has been squirreling away such equipment over the last couple of years in preparation for the outbreak.

Don't expect the game to go easy on you. Each character is equipped with one injection of virucide, which will keep zombies from biting you if they manage to grab you. And virucide, as you can imagine, is extremely scarce in the game world.

Get grabbed by a shuffling undead and you’ll get a chance to plunge a needle into its neck and completely destroy it. Run out of these last-resort rescue injections, and you’re pretty much dead. It only takes one bite before your character is turned to a fellow zombie - and instead of starting back at a checkpoint, you respawn as a brand new human survivor and must play through the entire level from the beginning.

The cool thing is, in a feature akin to Dark Souls, your equipment is lost at the point in which you died - but instead of lying in one point, your kit stays with the recently-turned survivor you last played. Kill them, and you get all your loot back. But, with short supply of items and only three weapons to choose from - a cricket bat, a low-ammo pistol and a slow-reloading crossbow - it won’t take long before you’re killed several times over if you're not fast.

Zombi is decidedly one for the hardcore. If they dare tackle it...
